TMZ has released a story alleging Earl Thomas III and his wife got into an altercation which ended with his wife, Nina Thomas, holding a loaded firearm to his head.

According to court documents, Nina said Thomas left with his brother, Seth Thomas, and she logged into his Snapchat account where she found video of Earl with another woman.

She used the Snapchat account to track his location to an AirBnB rental. She says she called two other women to confront Earl with her about the alleged cheating. In the process, she also grabbed Earl’s pistol, a 9mm Berreta, with the intention to “scare him.”

When Nina discovered both Earl and his brother with other women naked in bed, she put it to Earl’s head — stating “that she took out the magazine thinking that the gun could not fire.” Cops say Nina was “unaware that the gun had a round in the chamber.”

Earl essentially corroborated the story but added Nina repeatedly hit him while attempting to disarm the firearm from her.

In the end, Nina Thomas and the two women she called to come with her were arrested. Earl Thomas III was not arrested. Nina was arrested for burglary of a residence with intent to commit aggravated assault with a deadly weapon — family violence, and later bonded out.

According to court documents, Earl Thomas also placed an emergency protective order, requiring her to stay 200 yards away from Earl and the alleged woman he was with.

Earl Thomas submitted a video prior to the release of this story on Instagram.

“It’s really not anybody’s business,” Thomas said. “We try to live the best lives that we possibly can but sometimes it doesn’t go as planned.”
